This is driving me crazy! I registered to their forums to report some crashes, provided all the information. Uploaded some log files about the BSOD error message and provided useful information. I even provided the download link and some verification hash strings just to ensure that the person who downloads them can verify the file integrity if it hasn't been corrupted.
Then they told me to upload the files to an FTP server with every single step to that they could provide me, that is just plain insulting, and just stupid. I was clear enough that I'm not a computer newbie. I told them that they were wrong and there's no need for all the things. I would have been happy with only just a few words stating that just upload the error logs to this server. And after that I got bombarded by users who only just building their posts and only just to harass me. They just bash other people just for reporting some bugs to the developers and they tell you that you are wrong.
I saw that they posted on their forums some details about their beta version of their antivirus product with download links. And someone even posted in their beta topic a legit feature request. Even if wasn't grammatically correct it was a definitely was understandable. Then they started making fun of him, and telling him that his sentence doesn't make any sense. One user even told him what he has smoke. I told them that to be nice, there's no need for rude comments. The user was a new member of the forum. I posted some bugs about their AutoSandbox feature and suggested some stuff about it. They still bashed me, and told me that my posts are garbage and off-topic.
I did explained in detail what the problem is actually, I made valid point and talked about the whole feature. And then I got two warnings for literally nothing. I did helped some new users and they provided some tools, and I just told them that I don't like it, and there are other alternatives. I also told them that if they like them that's great, and I told them how I do the stuff manually without any tools.
Today I can't even post on the forum anymore. I got another warning. That's a total of three warnings, Check the screenshot below! Just for telling others to be respectful with other members and not to threat everybody as a stupid this is what I got. Shame on the corrupt moderators and all the haters there. I've seen far more better forums where you can at least do conversations like an intelligent human being and not like an animal. Moderators there abuse their powers without any reasons! I like their free antivirus products but after all these I think I might even switch to another product. And not just because they messed with we, but because I had enough of all the crappy members who just contradict other people for no reason, and they even defend themselves just because they have more than 10000 posts or even more, or just even a half of them. They only just care about their post counter and to make as many posts as possible. That doesn't matter if they post two or three word sentences, they just do it.
As I said their product is decent, but their community is just really bad! I mean baaad. I've seen here other complaints here, and this will definitely will be a nice addition to the complaints list, just because we can. I recommend if you have any problems with avast! just don't go to their forums, ask someone else because they are complete idiots. They treat you as a monkey, not matter if you are reporting stuff in detail and chit chatting about stuff. Shame on you guys! Respect for the friendly members there, but a big no no to the offensive and disrespectful members!
